POWER PRESS INSPECTIONS
Power press and machinery guarding inspections from PSI Ltd are carried out in accordance with PUWER (the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations of 1998). PUWER is a set of laws that outlines the treatment and maintenance of power presses and similar equipment in the workplace. These regulations must be followed to ensure the legality and safety of your power press operations. An aspect of PUWER is the regular completion of thorough inspections upon your equipment and machinery.
A power press examination will test the condition of your pressing equipment. This is essential when dealing with these high-risk and dangerous machines. Studies have shown that poorly managed equipment will be found as the cause of misdemeanours in 40% of power press incidents. Professional PUWER inspections and testing from PSI will keep your equipment properly examined in order to ensure the safety of your employees, and also to protect your business from legal ramifications.
A power press inspection is required:
> On the initial installation of your power press.
> Periodically, which we’ll inform you of using our Inspection Notification Program.
The law states that annual PUWER risk assessments must be carried out by a ‘competent person’. At PSI we have over 30 years experience fulfilling this role. Our engineers have a complete understanding of the regulations surrounding power presses and have the knowledge to identify any potential hazards. Upon the completion of your inspection you will be provided with a test report and certificate.
